The SOMW holds a number of competitions each year.
It also creates awards, principally by conferring Fellowships of the society.
SOMW competitions are open to all members of the Society: awards are by committee nomination only.
We are aware of a large number of external competitions. Here are some of them:
- A curated list of current national and international creative writing competitions
- A list of competitions on the Completely Novel website
- Just announced — the Annual Lucy Cavendish fiction prize for unpublished female writers over 21 (entries close Feb 8th 2019)
